Workday Wednesday: Alternate Occupations

 While most Luxembourgers worked on farms, there were those who led very different lives. Luxembourgers in Chicago ran greenhouses. In Meriden, Luxembourg-Americans staffed the local factories. Some, however, passed under the radar. Those individuals lived in agricultural communities but worked in their own businesses. It's those people that make me the most curious. I'd love to be able to tell their stories.
   So, I pose the question - how do I find out more about these semi-agricultural immigrants?
